Restaurants in Santorini

Because tourism brings revenue to the island, many Santorini restaurants are geared towards giving you an authentic taste of their culture. Many of the locals live off of the sea, and at a Santorini restaurant called Delfinia, you can sit right by the sea and eat freshly caught fish. Because of the arid climate, Santorini is also famous for its wines. Kira Thira is one of the oldest bars in Fira and has live music nights on many occasions, should you also wish to get a feel for the Santorini musical styles.

The Archipelagos Restaurant offers not only delicious Greek food, but also a perfect view of the sunset over the cliffs of Fira. T+L recommend eating at 1800 and Ambrosia while visiting Santorini. 1800 is inside a mansion built in 1845 and serves typical Greek dishes, like grilled grouper and lamb chops. It is considered by some as one of the best restaurants in Santorini. Ambrosia has only a dozen tables for a more intimate feel and, should there be no more tables left, has a sister restaurant nearby (Ambrosia & Nectar).
